The 'Top Gun' sequel has been delayed almost a year until June 26, 2020.

Tom Cruise is set to return for 'Top Gun: Maverick', which was originally slated for a July 12 release next summer, but it was announced this week that the movie has been pushed back by just over 11 months.

As reported by Variety, Paramount Pictures made the announcement and explained the extra time will be used by filmmakers to figure out the logistics of flight sequences with new planes and technology.

The sequel - which will come 34 years after the original hit the big screen - will be set in the world of drone technology, and it's going to explore the end of the dogfighting era.

News of the delay comes after it was revealed Jon Hamm and Ed Harris have joined the cast of the film, which will see Cruise and Val Kilmer reprise their roles from the original.

The film will also star Miles Teller in the lead role as the son of Goose, Maverick's wingman, who was played by Anthony Edwards in the original movie.
